Or Atid Talks in 3! 

Reflections on the High Holidays, Judaism & the Meaning of Life in three minutes

Hearing from various congregants throughout our High Holiday services has become a beloved and anticipated tradition at Or Atid. This year, Or Atid Talks will be shared via video here in our weekly update, and posted on our website for future viewing.  

Please enjoy this week’s reflection, given by Or Atid Trustee Howard Gold.

Sanctuary visits at Or Atid

For many of us, private prayers in front of the Aron Kodesh are an important and meaningful part of the High Holidays This year we are offering various dates and times for each family to visit the sanctuary at Or Atid for 15 minute intervals in order to have time for this personal reflection. Appointments and masks will be required. Sign up here. Please email Rabbi Polisson if you would like him to be available for Misheberach or other prayers.
